Visa information

This is some general visa advice for your conference travel to Australia. We recommend conference delegates to check with their closest Australian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate for visa recommendations if they are applying independently. The Australian Immigration law restricts individuals from providing visa advice or options unless you are registered migration agent.

Conference delegates should, in most cases, apply for an Electronic Travel Authority Subclass 601. These visas carry a nominal cost of AUD20. You must hold a passport issued by one of the countries or regions listed below:

Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Brunei, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong (SAR of China), Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Monaco, Norway, Portugal, Republic of San Marino, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, The Netherlands, United Kingdom-British Citizen, United Kingdom-British National (Overseas), United States or Vatican City.

If you hold a non-citizen passport or other travel document, such as a Certificate of Identity, you are not eligible to apply for an ETA. For alternative visas and further information please see: http://www.immi.gov.au/Visas/Pages/Find-a-visa.aspx. The purpose 'Visit Australia' covers business visits that include participation in conferences.

Australian Immigration Laws are very strict; therefore check with your travel agent or nearest Australian Consulate.
